A somewhat quieter week of weather is in store for the US compared to last week, but that doesn’t mean there’s no weather to track. More rain and storms, some of which may be severe, will pop up even as warm and sunny weather dominates the Northeast. Here’s this week’s 5 Things to Watch: Eastern US Severe: Severe weather will threaten a large chunk of the eastern US on Monday, especially in the afternoon, when daytime heating and instability maximizes. That risk will span from parts of the Great Lakes, into the eastern Ohio River Valley, and down the Appalachian Mountains chain. There will be scattered showers and storms moving eastward near the Mississippi River in the morning, but as it runs into a more conducive atmosphere, the storms will turn severe. Damaging winds and small hail will be the main risks before the threat dwindles after sunset. Better Week…

We’re tracking that and more in this week’s 5 Things to Watch.

For the start of the week, there will be a broad area of low pressure over the Mid-Atlantic and a more-organized low over the Ohio River Valley. Both of these storms will pose a risk for severe weather across these regions. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main risks, but isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

It’s been a very active week across the nation in terms of severe weather, and this Thursday, the next target for strong storms will be parts of the Northeast. All modes of severe weather will be present, including a few tornadoes, damaging winds, and moderate hail. This risk will span from Upstate New York down through northern Virginia, with the greatest risk across Pennsylvania. The main culprit for these severe storms will be low pressure tracking east across the Great Lakes, with showers and storms forming ahead of its warm and cold fronts. Tonight into Thursday morning, there will already be a few showers, and possibly isolated thunderstorms, that push east ahead of the cold front across portions of the Northeast. These showers will not be severe, but may make for a slower morning commute, especially in the New York City area. Now as we move into tomorrow afternoon, daytime…
